MICHAEL I. NIMAN: WAR PROPAGANDA AND THE LANGUAGE OF FASCISM: Parts one and two, If you look at most of the rhetoric about the war, its really an appeal to emotions, not reason," Prof. Niman tells his Chautauqua audience. "Because if we operated with reason, if were thinking about reason, then suddenly people have memory. Wait a second, right? This is about weapons of mass destruction, about an immediate threat to the United States, had nothing to do with liberating IraqIts all an appeal to emotion. This is the language fascism. Language that appeals to our emotions, as opposed to appealing to our reasonGood propaganda has to attach their message to our values. We value freedom, so this becomes /*Operation Iraqi Freedom* /Our media is censored. Is the government censoring it? No. Its self-censorship.(Prof Niman, Buffalo State College, spoke at Chautauqua Institutions Hall of Philosophy Aug. 16, 2005. Event sponsor: the Chautauqua Society for Peace and Social Justice. two 30min parts.)
